Good listening

Even though the semester just finished–Commencement is Saturday!–I’m already thinking about next fall, when I’ll be teaching a course in Politics and Religion. I’ve been looking for ways to help students become more literate about religion and the role it plays in modern life.

So, while out for a run today, I tuned in to a (relatively) recent episode of American Public Media’s Speaking of Faith (yes, it’s available as a podcast). My intent was to get a sense of the program (which I’d never listened to before) to see whether it would be worth my while to use it with my students.

I’ll have to check out a few more episodes before I make that call. But the episode I listened to today, The Beauty and Challenge of Being Catholic: Hearing the Faithful, is definitely worth listening to.
